But on the subject, I've just recently gotten more into stuff like Attack! Attack! and Confide... anyone know of other decent "crab-core" bands like them?

I forgot that people can't hear my ironic tone on the internet.


As for crabcore... House Vs Hurricane is probably one of the best bands of that scene out there... Otherwhise I'd suggest We Came as Romans, Sky Eats Airplanes and Horse the Band.

Yeah the new Darkest Hour is very underwhelming. Too many of the songs sound the same. I think I like Undoing Ruin the best, mostly because of the sweet solos and really catchy riffs. I haven't really given Deliver Us too many listens though.

I'm hoping the new Shadows Fall is a lot better than that pile of poo poo Threads of Life. Man that was awful. The War Within was loving sick though, I loved it.

basically bands that sound like Attack Attack!, even though they aren't at all the originators of the style. however, they are the only band of that style with their very own meme.

The actual names are "Trendcore" or "NintendoCore", the genre is so ridiculous that there's not really a serious name for it yet. Musically, it's simply Metalcore or Deathcore, with the addition of electronica elements. Often, it takes the form of a keyboard with a 8-Bit sound, hence the name NintendoCore.


The name Crabcore originates from the position of the bassist in an Attack Attack videoclip for Stick Stickly.

well converge and botch are literally what metalcore should be, hardcore with metal influences.

the definition of metalcore being used in this thread are more for bands like as I lay dying and such, bands with catchyish gothenberg style riffs, heavy use of breakdowns, and clean-singing. Converge and Both really have none of these things.

I'm stoked as hell for the new Converge. Also, the new Narrows is pretty boss, if short.

There's a track here: http://www.myspace.com/narrows

If every metalcore band had Dave on vocals I would listen to each of them.

Why not something like electro-core? I mean come on, crabcore? Nintendocore? I like some of the bands within this genre (and am a complete and utter HORSE the Band fanboy) but I never ever say I listen to Nintendocore....and would never ever say I listen to crabcore.

Come to think of it, I never say I listen to anything-core. I call it all metal, unless there are clean emo vocals and a bunch of breakdowns. Then I call it gay.

Is new Converge actually announced and featuring a release date, or is it just sort of a general idea that a new tape might be coming out?

note that it also says "whatever-core" in the title; any bands with a "core" in their subgenre name are welcome.

Also, a favorite of mine that I've seen locally a few times, but by no means a local band, We Came As Romans. Some of the breakdowns are just the sickest things I've ever heard and the clean vocals are actually very well done. Definitely worth checking out.

There's no title/tracklist as far as I know, but there was a video of an instrumental version of one of the new songs a while ago that sounded pretty sick. It showed them jamming while Jake was slouched in a corner writing lyrics.

It's probably the same tour. Emarosa was supposed to play, but they got lost or something and never made it. I've never heard of them though, so it didn't bother me. The venue gave out vouchers to get in free the next time they come and play, which I swear they said was with ADTR and Parkway Drive, so seeing that for free is going to make it so much better.

Wow, well you and really everyone else in the world should check Emarosa out. They basically used to be a TDWP-style metalcore band but the old gay singer left to form Agraceful (lovely generic band) and Jonny Craig from Dance Gavin Dance came and joined up with them to form a beautiful and epic post-hardcore band to release their first real album, Relativity.

"Crabcore" is something phiz invented to make fun of attack attack, it's not really called that. However the band did run with it and now they're making shirts with "crabcore" on them.

I'd say about three years ago now I saw From A Second Story Window play, and this silly sausage was in the pit running from side to side in the squatted "Crab" position, extending and retracting his arms as they moved like "crab claws."

I had seen them play a few times before, but never a reaction like that and I have always since associated that band with "crab moshing."

Until today, I never knew crab-core existed.

I remember thinking that same thing the first time I heard them. However now I severely disagree and urge you to give it a couple more listens, it does have a kind of similar "soundscape" I guess you could say throughout the album but hardly not like one long song. Heads or Tails? Real Or Not is interesting in particular because it uses the normally angry/angsty breakdown to create a happy feeling, I find that they do this on other parts of the album as well, its really very pleasing

edit: I mean there are parts of it I don't like such as certain elements of the production in some parts of a couple songs but overall I would say its an excellent album

Those dudes are really broductive when in the studio, and if these mother chuggers keep going, they'll be heading for the top in no time!

And here are the rest of the groovin' fellas!:


From L to R: Harold Doucherson (rythem guitar), Todd "Sweetmeat" Worble (lead guitar and backing vokills), Mort "Hitler" Stordowski (bass), and Dale "Whitebread" Moriano (drums).

Just listen to the fuckin' chops on those bastards, and Joey's vocals are something only a true metalhead can stomach! Harold and Todd sure know their way around an axe, and fuckin' "Hitler" is non-existent! Dale aint worth poo poo though... too bad about him...

Check out their song "A Bro's Call To Arms (Pabst Blue Ribbon Medley)"

Oh yeah, and if anybody could give me any recommendations for bands that are bitchin' to listen to while crushing beer cans on my forehead for Christ and doin ollies on my skateboard that'd be pretty boss.

Most dudes who I know who listen to a lot of hardcore and metalcore are into Converge.

Been pumping Between the Buried and Me- Colors a lot lately. Awesome album to go back to because you always pick up new poo poo. Such an awesome band. Ants of the Sky is definitely the stand out track.

Also going back listening to some Parkway Drive for some pretty stock standard metalcore. Horizons is growing on me, think it is a lot more mature than Killing With a Smile. Some of it is loving useless.

Man I wish I could suck down Varg Vikernes, Mayhem and Gorgoroth's semen.

Black Dahlia Murder is just a melodic death metal band that appeals to the metalcore crowd for some unknown reason (I like them but I don't see the connection)

Parkway Drive is such a sick band in general, but I definitely think Killing With A Smile is the better of the two albums.

Suffokate, ABACABB and For the Fallen Dreams just played around here recently and it was probably one of the best shows I've ever seen in my life. Suffokate and ABACABB are two of the heaviest bands I've ever heard.

I saw Cancer Bats open for Billy Talent in San Francisco (500 person venue, really awesome) and they rocked the house. The lead singer accidentally stepped on my then girlfriends hand and tried to play it off like he didn't care.

Then after the set he was hanging out by the merch table and she told him she was girl and he hugged her, let her pick 1 free merch item and apologized like crazy.


They are also really good, be it live or on record.
